Naughty but oh so nice

Naughty but oh so Nice, SE pose prop

Something New props and poses has a ” naughty side” expressed through their brand called Something Erotic, with a range of single and couples poses with/out props. Of course with the lead up to Christmas there are seasonal poses to capture the kinkier side of the festivities. A prime example is the Naughty but oh so nice couple pose, chair included. The poses I used in the single photos below are also from SE, the Ho Ho Sexy Ho pack. You will find these SE poses located on the SN Photoland in a small store to the side

Victoria , emerald, Carries Lingerie

Another store that really gets into the season is Carries Lingerie, with their range of new releases reduced on the day they are released. This sexy lace ensemble is called Victoria and comes in a range of seductive dark colours. The set includes an omega hud with 2 options of bodysuit top and a dress style, add on puff -styled sleeves and floor length satin skirt. The shorter skirt and lace trimmed bows can be worn over the skirt giving it a Victorian styled look, or worn alone with the bodysuit. Also included is a matching choker and lace be-decked top hat.

The Hunt for Peace

Ghee, POE hunt prize

This time of year is a time of celebration, of family, gifts and giving. The start of December saw the arrival of many advent calendars and hunts starting up in Secondlife. One of the well established and much loved hunts is the Peace on Earth, I hadn’t yet checked out the hunt page when I spied this beautiful gown on a blog, it turns out it is the POE gift at Ghee. I really love the subtle ombre and sparkle effect to this gown and was impressed to discover it included a range of fittings for different mesh bodies.

With over 200 participating stores this is not a hunt to start after Christmas, get in quick and enjoy the hunting as well as the rewards.

No Hands, Something New

I have been meaning to create this post as soon as I saw this prop from Something New- it’s a hunt prize and although designed for males I think it works okay for females too. It isn’t too hard to guess the inspiration for the styling of these pictures, I’m sure it didn’t take you longer than it took to read the title.

Which is a good thing because you will need to be quick to grab up some of these items. Head to Something New for the hunt:

The fantastic metallic skin is Pris from YS&YS at We Love Roleplay, which closes the 30th November. The hair is Cat ( RARE includes goggles and chains add ons) from EMO-tions at Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Outfit is a fantastic romper from Erratic, whilst the boots are Survivor from N-Core.

These eyes are stand-outs from Avi Glam, the Hope eyes shown here in Ruby and Charcoal ( yes you can colour the eyes individually) are currently available at Shiny Shabby. You can buy the eyes in single colours or a fatpack – remember they include a mesh set of eyes with hud, Catwa applier and Omega applier giving you lots of options. This round of Shiny Shabby is open until the 15th December so you have a little longer to grab these there before they head to the mainstore.

Sweet Exposition, Danika Design + N-Core

Black Friday weekend is a great opportunity to enjoy some sales around the grid, picking up some fantastic bargains from your favourite stores. But it can also be the perfect opportunity to explore some new to you stores and that’s exactly what I did.

A friend tped me over to Danika Design, a store which specialises in super sexy clothing for women. I also noticed there are several other stores connected but I will go back and explore them another time. Currently the sale is for items that include PINK in the pack, as I was looking around my friend approached the owner on my behalf and she kindly sent me a copy of this eye-catching outfit  –  really it is impossible to ignore.

Desert blooms

Desert blooms

Varvara is the name of this recent release at Sascha’s Designs, available in a range of colours I have selected this soft dreamy apricot. As with many of Sascha’s releases there are different options included so you have a variety of ways to wear this gown. The base is a mesh dress in Belleza, Slink and Fitmesh options, there is also included a Autohide object so I added this and selected the Slink version to wear on the Maitreya body, I was really happy with the result.

Varvara gown, apricot, Sascha's Designs

Add-on options include the ruff for the neckline, two different sleeve versions and two skirt variations these add-ons are not mesh and add a lovely movement to this gown. The front of the gown, sleeves and skirt hems all feature a floral motif , with a subtle sparkling effect on the bodice. I found an older LODE item in my inventory which appealed with the similar colours and garden theme.

Sascha's Designs + Lode+ Essences+ Monso

Continuing on with gacha items the #03 Essences [MochiP02] Catwa applier is from the current round of Pocket Gacha. If you haven’t checked out this new version of gacha play, I recommend you give it a try – you buy credits or let the hud access your L balance to allow you to play, then you can play the gacha anywhere you like ( though I do recommend you find a relatively lag free location). You have the option to play for individual chances to win of no copy/ transfer items ( as for a usual gacha machine) but you also have the option to purchase a full set that is copy/no transfer.

Other details: Catwa Kimberly mesh head, Maitreya body. Avi Glam Vivid Eyes – Catwa Applier – Night, [monso] My Hair – Daisy/ Brown, Pose: Nightshade 3, Infiniti ( old gacha item)-includes falling petals.

Just Because you’re worth it

Yeva gown, Azul

Just Because is the name of a popular clothing store in SL, but it’s also the name of a newly released ring from Zuri Jewelry. But first I want to mention this gorgeous gown from Azul, Yeva combines the best of mesh and flexi add-ons in a delicious froth of lace that swirls as you move. Available in a range of colours , it also includes a range of fittings so whether you use a mesh body in SL or not you will be able to enjoy this glamorous evening wear.

SLurl to Azul :

I’ve included a close up to show of the floral detailed pearl necklace that is included with the gown plus the sparkling ring that is Just Because. Zuri Jewelry has these beauties available in a range of colour combinations at the mainstore . If you are extra lucky you may be treated to one just because someone special knows you’re worth it.. or treat yourself. There is also the option to purchase an Elite version of the ring which allows you to select from a range of different metals for the setting and different gems for the main jewel as well as the smaller ones along the band.

Now is a great time to make a visit to Zuri Jewelry as they celebrate their store Anniversary with special sales and hunts in the mainstore and other Jewels Isle stores, see the blog for more information:

Who’ll stop the rain

Who'll stop the rain

Long as I remember the rain been comin’ down
Clouds of mystery pourin’ confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages tryin’ to find the sun.
And I wonder still I wonder who’ll stop the rain.

I love exploring SL locations that are scenic and interesting, I stumbled over a new to me place and was thrilled to discover RAIN. In RL I am more than a bit frustrated with the amount of rain we have had lately, but in SL it is a great to find sims with weather settings. So grab the SLurl if you are in the mood to explore this fantastic place :

Maggie outfit, Sascha's Designs

The clothing for my exploration is from Sascha’s Designs, a fantastic layered outfit that could be worn almost anytime of the year.  The trench length vest/coat features a wonderful knit cable texture and add on collar, with a hud to choose from a range of colours you can also select a contrasting colour for the inner lining. The hud also allows you to select a colour for the undershirt or to hide it completely. The long vest includes both Slink sizes, Maitreya and all three Belleza fits. The included pants are on Omega or Maitreya applier and come in either black or white.
